Q: Why do career advisors disagree as to job search advice?
A: Just as different lawyers or doctors or plumbers or pest control people will give varying opinions and advice as to how to proceed, career counselors don’t all take the same approach.
Job searching is an art, not a science. Find a legal career counselor who, best case, is a lawyer too and who is willing to explain the reasoning behind their guidance. Then trust their experience…but don’t necessarily take all their advice. As long as you hear it and weigh it for yourself, you’ve done your job. Then execute a quality search and move on.
